away from him. joining me now rolling stone national affairs correspondent tim dickinson and doug thornel democratic strategist, knickerbocker former spokesman for the democratic campaign committee and traveling press secretary for howard dean's 2004 presidential campaign. thank you both for joining us. it was not so much fun watching last night and today i kind of had the sense that we've read at different points in our lives about the seven stages of grief. i kind of saw the democratic party working through the stages today. tim, let me ask you are they now beginning to deal with reality and figure out how to put these things back together? >> you know, i actually went back and rewatched the debate today. it was sort of less bad than i think people honestly -- maybe you think i'm in denial but i think this actually was not a tragic debate for the president. i thought he came across as sleepy and a step too slow but other than that, you know, he was fine under substance. he didn't have any notable gaffes. we're not ta
, news4. >> thank you, pat. hey, if you're heading out to the ballpark tonight, bundle up. doug kammerer is down at nats park as well. hellie held out the coat, doug. >> well, you know, some guys need coats a little bit sooner than other guys. that's what it boils down to right now. it is a very cold one -- sorry, buddy, he's right here, by the way. i'll say this, about superstition. this is so interesting for me. i am wearing the same tie, the same shirt, the same suit as i did last night, because there's a little superstition there. but i made sure all the important stuff obviously has been changed. just to let you know. and yes, there has been a shower. as far as the weather today, let's look at what's going on. it is not only cold out here, it is going to be freezing tonight. it's already on the cold side right now. 58 degrees down at the airport. right across the river. winds out of the northwest about 15 miles an hour. take a look at the temperatures now. those winds are going to make things feel even cooler later on this evening. temperatures in the mid-50s across the region. 55 i
it started about 25 minutes ago. our hurricane sandy coverage begins with chief meteorologist doug kammerer, who has been tracking the storm throughout the day. doug? >> yeah, watching this storm out there right now, you can see where this is. right now, down through portions of cape may county, new jersey, that's where it's coming ashore right now. it was moving extremely fast, at 28 miles an hour. but looking at some of the latest imagery here, it looks like it's really starting to slow down. waiting to see what's going on. you can notice very dry air wrapping around the center. and the rain just cutting off. right now, right around the philadelphia area. they're no longer seeing the heavy rain. we, however, are continuing to see the heavy rain. the latest advisory as of 5:00, had winds of 90 miles an hour. a very strong category 1 storm. the pressure down to 940 millibars. this storm has now set all-time low pressure records for atlanticcity, for trenton, new jersey and for philadelphia. all-time lowest pressure ever recorded. and that goes back to the super storm of '93. even b
declared across our entire area. doug kammerer right now is here to explain why we should keep a close eye on this one. >> the reason for this, jim, is not because we have a hurricane to the south. it's because what's going to be happening after. this right now, it says it's a hurricane, but most likely it's a tropical storm. but do not let that fool. the 8:00 advisory, i bet it will come out as tropical storm sandy, but it doesn't matter, don't let a weakening storm now fool you later. because this storm is going to continue to make its way up the coast. right now has winds of 57 miles an hour. that was the latest as of the 5:00 advisory from the national hurricane center, moving to the north at 7 miles per hour. it is expected to become a tropical storm most likely around 00, 11:00 advisory. the track is what you want to focus on here. the cone of uncertainty takes it anywhere from boston, to the richmond area and anywhere in between is going to see very strong winds. not going to be the rain, most likely not the flooding in our region, it will be the winds. let's take a look
phone. we'll continue to keep you updated right from this storm center. >> doug, thanks. stay with news4 as we track sandy onli nbcwashington.com, twitter and facebook, and right here on news4. >>> a well-known swimming coach who taught local athletes for decades was arrested today for child abuse. that accusation against rick curl, it dates back 30 years. news4's pat collins spoke to his accuser and was there when curl turned himself in. pat? >> reporter: at the montgomery county jail, a swim coach charged in a child sex case. it goes back to the '80s. the victim? one of his best swimmers. 63-year-old rick curl, a well-known washington area swim coach, leaving the montgomery county jail after he was officially charged in a child abuse sex case. a case that goes back 30 years. curl released on a $50,000 money bond. the victim, kelly davies kearn. i talked to her by phone about curl's arrest. >> i don't know whether to laugh or cry. i'm thankful. i'm sad. i just feel confirmation that what i did was the right thing to do. >> reporter: according to court documents, curl sexually abused the
coverage begins with chief meteorologist doug kammerer. this storm seems to be right on schedule. >> it really does. it is now moving close to 30 miles an hour. it has made a beeline for the jersey coast. it is now just to the north and coming ashore. you can see what's going on. a ton of rain on the west side of the storm. but notice, the strongest side, normally the northeast corner here, that's where you see the strongest winds, 84-mile-an-hour wind gusts in long island. notice the rain here, really cutting off on the back side, as it makes its way in. we'll continue to see rain here, though, as we continue to be on the southwest side of the storm. here's atlantic city. here's the ey coming onshower right now. atlantic city, probably seeing the strongest winds they have seen in years. maybe even decades right now. potentially 90, 100-mile-an-hour winds with this storm. you can see the outer eye wall which is right here through cape may county, new jersey, along the delaware bay. we're watching this rig around rehoboth beach. they're probably seeing very strong winds out of the

even stronger today as it moves over jamaica and heads to cuba. doug kammerer has more on how sandy could have an impact on us here. doug? >> it really could have an impact on our weather as we make our way into the weekend and early next week. hurricane sandy with winds of 80 miles an hour, just off the coast of the eastern portions of jamaica right now. really hit that eastern side very, very hard. winds upwards of 80 miles an hour, with stronger gusts. trees down, power outages there. now it's on its way over toward cuba. video a little bit earlier this morning as it was making its way onshore. the incredible surf this storm is producing, we'll see it move up the east coast over the next few days. it will be in cuba, bahamas, florida, carolina also, and portions of the northeast. the potential is there for this to be a very dangerous storm. here it is right there. winds right now 80 miles an hour. moving to the north at 14 miles per hour. on that track, moves very close to miami, just off the coast there. and then right up the coast, staying offshore through most of this time per
here. maybe colder than expected. i'm sure it was forecast right to a t by doug kammerer, chief meteorologist out here. this is october weather, man. the end of october weather. >> that's exactly right. you talk about that, not colder than expected, by the way. what are you trying to do to me? >> of course not. >> you knew what it was going to be. >> that's what happens in october baseball. we haven't experienced that here in the washington, d.c. area. it's really quite amazing. you've seen some games in october that actually have snow associated with them. some of the later games, the nlds, and of course the world series. let's hope we get to there. we wouldn't mind dealing with more cold weather. but you said you sat down and said, it's legitimately cold out here. >> it's because of the wind. i think you said it's about 20 miles an hour. i'm curious how it will affect the pitching. >> it will affect the pitching, and maybe the hitting, too. 58 with the winds out of the north at 16, but gusting to 25 miles an hour. that wind will make it a lot cooler through the night. current
, you ain't seen nothing yet. doug, what's coming? >> what's coming is really cool air. i think many areas are going to get down close to the freezing mark during the night tomorrow night. tonight's going to be chilly. what's coming is going to be even colder. out there right now, 60 degrees with plenty of sunshine. winds out of the south at 12 miles an hour. and when you're in the shade, and the sun's going down right now, so there's a lot of shade out there, 20-mile-an-hour winds feel cool. 60 towards la plata. as we move through the night tonight, this is what you can expect, say, in through northwest, silver spring, rosemary hill area. temperatures falling to the 50s, to around 42 when you wake up tomorrow morning, a freeze watch for some. i'll show you who coming up. >>> down to the wire tonight for the nats. >> if they win, they'll play again tomorrow. but lose and their season is done. pat collins is in nats park where fans aren't giving up hope next. pat, how is it going? >> reporter: it's going pretty well, doreen. the feeling here today, much different than yesterday. this
pleasant. doug kammerer is up in the weather center to tell us about more changes coming up. >> the sunshine helped to push numbers to about 70 degrees. but yeah, we've got cooler knobs moving in. out there right now, 68 gregs, winds out of of the southwest at 9 miles an hour. actually, a very pleasant evening, after what was a spectacular afternoon. look at the temperatures, though, to the north and west. much cooler as we have the front moving in. 59 in gaithersburg. still 70 manassas and 67 towards pax river. temperatures overnight will be quite cool. but just wait until you see how cool we're going to be in the next couple of days. >>> coming up, a 14-year-old girl is singled out by the taliban and hunted down after school. now an entire country is erupting in support of a teenager who's fighting for her life. >>> the life of a firefighter is part of a new nbc drama, but d.c.'s fire chief said the real work goes well beyond just fighting fires. >>> and a fisherman who fell overboard is saved, but the rescue mission didn't end there. >>> history made today as washington h
situation. >>> chief meteorologist doug kammerer is here now with your first forecast. doug? >> guys, temperatures today climbing to near 70 degrees. take a look at the shot right now. a beautiful, beautiful afternoon. a few clouds make their way in. temperatures 69 degrees out there right now. winds out of the west at 7 miles per hour. what are we going to be seeing the rest of the evening? you can see dew point is 44. but that's going to be going down behind a frontal boundary. temperatures ahead of that front, 70 in leesburg and 70 over towards annapolis. just gorgeous. here's the frontal boundary, making its way in. in through portions of west virginia. that front will move through. and it will cool things down again. western fairfax county, to the reston and herndon area, through your morning, how about this, temperatures 63 degrees by 7:00. looking good. under partly sunny skies. 57 degrees by 11:00. waking up tomorrow morning to a rather cool 43. some of you will be in the upper 30s tomorrow. we'll talk about the real cool air, when the coolest weather moves in in my forecast.
now, doug schoen and pat caddell, also a fox news contributor and former pollster for jimmy carter. i want to start with these ohio numbers because, because there was also a poll out that said it was tied at 47, and ppp, a democratic-leaning firm, released a poll showing obama up just one point in ohio. do you believe that it's a tied race in ohio, doug? >> i do. i think the fox news poll last week had it three, and i think pat and i both believe that the momentum in the race, the clear momentum is moving to mitt romney, and ohio which is probably both a bellwether and the key to the election, has been moving slowly, but it's moved about five or six points in the last week or so, and bottom line that makes this race dead even with all the momentum in governor romney's direction. megyn: the ppp poll that showed the president up by just one in ohio apparently had a sampling, a democrat sampling advantage of 8%, and earlier it was a democratic advantage of four. so the president is showing, you know, that he's doing worse even with more democrats in the sample in the tate of ohio, pat. w
, a very different look inside the campaign from presidential historian doug brinkley who got an opportunity to watch his tore being made as well as what president obama called mitt romney. it rhymes with, well, show-bidder. it's causing outrage tonight. this, on the other hand, there may be reason for the romney campaign to cheer. the breaking news. the abc news/"washington post" tracking poll now has mitt romney ahead by three points and more crucially, hitting the 50% mark for the first time. in our own cnn poll of polls, governor romney currently enjoys a one-point lead, 48-47. as you no doubt know, the race will boil down to a few key states and tonight, we also have new numbers from the nbc/"wall street journal" poll in colorado showing the race there tied. in nevada, the same poll has president obama out front by three, whereas in virginia, new polling from fox has mr. romney up by two. that's a nine-point swing in his favor since september. now, not coincidentally the campaigns in the last several days have stopped in all of those states. take a look. how would you lik
, after several cold days, we had a bit of a warm-up today, but we're about to plummet again. doug kammerer joins us outside on storm 4 weather deck with the details. doug? >> guys, i wore the red tie for the nationals, and you know what happens now, since they lost, i've got to throw this tie away. i've got to get another one for tomorrow's game. but that's aok for me. because tomorrow i think we've got this thing. 70 degrees out here right now. the warmest day we've seen since saturday, last saturday. winds out of southwest at 9 miles an hour. that is ahead of a frontal boundary. we're seeing more clouds move in, but still a rather nice evening. i want you to notice the numbers, 70 in annapolis, 71 in fredericksburg, look back to the northwest. cumberland, maryland, right now at 55 degrees. that frontal boundary starting to come through the region. you can see it very clearly defined with the cloud cover in through west virginia, in through portions of western maryland. that front will move through tonight. we're talking about some rather cool numbers, if you're heading to fairfa
arctic meteorologist doug hill has a look at the temperatures and -- our chief meteorologist does kill us all look the temperatures and how things will go tonight. >> everybody north and west of washington is as low as 32. 30 -- 40's elsewhere. at the moment, 41 in winchester. a little milder to the south in the low to mid-50's. all these temperatures are lower than average. 55 is the best we could do it reagan national. 51 at dulles. we have an upper layer disturbance coming through. we will keep an eye on that. we will look ahead to warmer days in our forecast coming up in just a bit. >> thank you some much, doug. remember, you can track the temperatures in your town online at wjla.com and the stormwatch 7 app on your smartphone. and in the race for president mitt romney is crisscrossing the old dominion. >> that's right. this is his second stop in a virginia at newport news. this comes out -- as polls show the race between romney and president obama are in a dead heat. >> a poll taken after last week's debate shows running getting a bounce in the polls. that same gallup poll s
in its abdomen. >> we turn to weather now. temperatures down, wind is up. doug, what's up? >> we've seen those winds gusting 20-25 miles per hour. already down 12 degrees in the district. someover us down to 20 drrg already. that is the cold air that will continue to ve in over night tonight. and tonight is not ef ebb close to the coldest night in my forecast. >> oh, my, thank you, doug. up next, a bride to be breaks the law in her quest for her dream wedding. >> the first lady lays [ female announcer ] it's one of the hardest decisions a family can make... realizing a nursing home is the only choice. for many middle class families, medicaid is the only way to afford the care. but as a governor, mitt romney raised nursing home fees eight times. and as president, his budget cuts medicaid by one-third and burdens families with the cost of nursing home care. we have a president who won't let that happen.

the d.c. metro area to rehoboth beach. we begin with storm team four doug kammerer with the latest on sandy's track. >> we have the latest track out there chris, that track brings it very close to our region and once again, the forecast not real letter changing all that much. the forecasts have been very good over the past couple days on when this storm is going to be going. you can see where it is right now, just off the coast of georgia here, here's savannah georgia, it's due east of savannah georgia. it's still a hurricane. the national hurricane center thought this would be a tropical storm, it's still a hurricane, still holding on, we're seeing strong wind as long the north carolina coast line. here's the winds, 75 mes an hour. moving to the northeast at 14 miles an hour. it continues to strengthen. the track taking it back out and then right back into shore. very close to our area. during the morning on tuesday. that's when i expect this to be the worst coming up late monday and into tuesday. let's talk about that wind. that's going to be the biggest factor here, as we look t
as we hurricane sandy. jennifer donelan has a look at the preparations here. >> first, doug hill joins us on the stormst position. >> that is all we are talking it is such an weathe5ronfluence of that could create historic conditions. the latest satellite image, the circulation southeast of category 2 105 mop or wind, -- 10 5 mile per the east, moving to northeast. exactly where. the storm track is between new jersey.that this may get weaker, but even when it makes landfall, it will more into the extra tropical, mega storm we have been talking about. sunday night through tuesday, we are expecting threats of excessive , high and damaging wind, associated power outages, and flooding on the coast. >> thankou, doug. we continue team coverage with many preparations underway washington area. jennifer donelan is live in northeast washington. she >> has how we are battening down in the metro area. >> this will be the problem away the coast. look at all of these leaves. the leaves are coming down. the possibility is very real e clawedcould have som storm drains. mean even more flooding. i
lindsay sandoval, doug patch, kate therrity and ryan stanley. guys, tell me you're getting extra credit for this. no? let's start with the obvious question. who debated better and why? lindsay, why don't we start with you. >> i think we knew that joe biden had a lot of expectations for this debate and i think he articulated how obama and his policies will help the middle class and how they'll defend medicare and social security. >> doug? >> i felt as though joe biden definitely had much more of an emotional appeal, but i think paul ryan was definitely more call and stated the facts much better than joe biden did. >> kate, what do you think? >> i think both spoke to the voters that they needed to speak to and i think that the lasting effect from biden's talking points from what he was saying will be stronger than to rain's. >> ryan? >> i think joe biden absolutely -- ryan's. >> ryan? >> i think joe biden absolutely stole the debate tonight. i think it resonates with middle class families. they like to see somebody is fighting for them. >> by raising your hand, anybody change their mind h
we can expect. doug? >> we can expect our days to get better. today, we saw a little bit of sunshine and the clouds rolled back in. sandy still around. rotating around our region, just up to the north and west of us, making its way to the north and east. it will bring a slight chance of a sprinkle or shower. what about halloween? your trick or treating forecast tonight? temperatures, 46 to 50 degrees. it will be a little on the chilly side. so just know that as you send the kids out for kanldz yesterday. we'll be right back. >>> thank you, doug. a man is dead after an accident on the outer loop of the beltway. 44-year-old qualmy abon was killed in the crash about 5:15 a.m. investigators say his car was rear ended by a car and hit by a truck. the cause is still under vestigation. nobody else was hurt. >>> grief counselors were called in at seneca valley high school after a 15-year-old student was hit and killed on her way to school. police say christina morris-ward was killed while trying to cross germantown road just before 7:00 this morning. pat collins is at the scene with reaction
team 4 meteorologist doug kammerer said severe weather could be on the way. how soon? >> it's going to be tomorrow, and probably tomorrow night. outside right now, it does not get better than this. most of the forecast has a lot of days like this in it. again, tomorrow could be a different story. we could be seeing severe weather. right now, a very big storm is taking shape in the middle part of the country. 68 degrees currently. winds out of the south at 9 hour. per around the rest of the region, simply gorgeous. temperature of 66 degrees right now in gaithersburg, 68 degrees in washington, and 70 degrees in through the fredericksburg area. once again, very nice conditions. with plenty of sunshine and light winds, this is simply a gorgeous, gorgeous afternoon. there's no rain right now. we're not going to see any rain for probably the next 24 hours. but there is that chance of severe weather during the evening hours tomorrow. we'll talk much more about that storm coming up. but i'll take you in through your morning. fairfax county, burke, great afternoon. looking very good toward f
there today. it was really very please act. doug kammerer here to tell us how long this might last. >> we were on the warm side of the frontal boundary. the front coming through right now. a few showers, even a few thunderstorms. right now you can see where they are, making their way through the annapolis area. now that line continues right through fairfax, prince william and down toward fauquier county, and culpepper county. we're seeing fairly heavier downpours along annapolis, and down to the south. down around the camp spring area. and then once you get into fairfax and montgomery counties, that's where the frontal boundary is. the front making its way through the area right now. we've already seen it come through d. krflt. we'll continue to see the showers and a few areas of thunderstorms, a few heavier pockets of rain through prince william county. get ready around springfield, and around the i-95 corridor, that is the area we're going to see that come through next. maybe quantico in the next 15 minutes to the next 20 minutes. the front coming through the d.c. area. areas have now shifte
strategy, but he doesn't live in the rose garden yet and no one has told him, chris. doug is absolutely right. he's not good on his feet. his last few interviews have been disasters. he was terrible with david gregory. when paul ryan sat down with chris wallace, he was hammered on the absence of details in their plans. romney couldn't even handle bret baier from fox. they can't even go to fox -- when they go on fox -- nobody blows fox who is a republican except these two guys. so i think it's the prevent defense except he's not sitting on a lead. he has a narrow popular vote lead. but he's behind in most of the swing states. he's behind in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, nevada. you know, i'm not sure this is so safe, but it's probably the safest course for him. >> well, i think bret baier is pretty good in that interview. one reason romney might steer clear of sit-down interviews, he's been barraged with questions about senate candidate richard mourdock. take a look. >> governor, do you wish mourdock would pull that ad? >> which way are we going? >> governor, do you disavow mourdock's comments
. doug's tracking the system and will give an hour-by-hour timeline of when we can expect sandy to affect us. >>> flying, driving, taking a train over the next couple of days? that could be a real challenge. i'm adam tuss. the story coming up. >>> and the costumes will turn heads, but they're also dangerous. liz crenshaw's consumer warnings to keep your t teacher: this is west virginia, pennsylvania, delaware. and this is maryland. every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty million gaming at casinos in these other states. question seven will build a new casino and bring table games to baltimore... generating hundreds of millions for schools. and that money has to go to education. it's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine. prand you're seeing that rightno quit in amnow.a... over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we sho
. >>> get ready for even colder temps on the way, folks. we could see our first freeze. meteorologist doug kammerer is outside on the storm 4 weather deck. doug? >> oh, yeah, high, guys. temperatures out here right now, 62 degrees out at the airport right now. winds out of the south at 7 miles per hour. humidity at 35%. very cool afternoon right now. we're going to be a lot cooler as we move through the next 24 hours or so. temperatures around the region, 61 in gaithersburg, 61 in leesburg, and 64 down towards fredericksburg. with this sunshine, feeling pretty good across much of the area, ashe sun goes down, however, we will cool off fairly quickly. let's head down to the silver spring area, around rosemary hills. i went there for a school talk earlier today. we'll show pictures in just a minute. 57 degrees at 7:00, 51 degrees by 11:00, and waking up to a cool 42 degrees early tomorrow morning. going to be a chilly start tomorrow. but wait until you see how cold we get tomorrow night. freeze watches in effect. >> yikes. >>> the washington nationals, they're facing elimination right now. t

budget office, douglas holtz-eakin. thanks to you both for joining us. doug, what do you think of those pictures? >> i think this is a reminder that greeks have not done the hard reforms they need to be successful. to be successful in the bad growth, big debt environment they have to cut government employment and reduce transfer programs. they have done very little of that. they were supposed to cut 30,000 jobs. they cut 1,000. they lost another nine from attrition. their entitlement reforms are not too dramatic. they have the retirement age up to 62. it is 67 in germany. angela merkel is there to remind them they have a lot of work to do. melissa: charles, what do you think of those pictures? >> well, they're the, european equivalent of burning an american flag, right? they're dressing up to in order to insult --. melissa: at least. >> in order to insult the germans. what doug says is absolutely right about how, how much austerity still has to go in greece. but it is also worth remembering that over the last three years their gdp has dropped, dropped, by 25%. they have 25% unemployment

. joining me now, doug glast brinkley, historian. doug, let's -- i want to get this out of the way. it is a remarkable thing, the piece is long, it is detailed and yet, one word the president uttered as an aside has gottens the attention. are you surprised or did you know when you wrote the piece that might be the thing that would grab folks is. >> i was surprised. when it first came out, the associated press and "the washington post" focused on president talking about the supreme court and affordable care yesterday. even yesterday that hit the blog and had its day of infamy and seems to be repeating today. >> now i want to talk about -- i like the day of infamy. some of the other stuff that's in there. and one of the things i was struck by in the interview is, the level -- i don't want to say it's distaste barack obama has of mitt romney but he's dismissive saying this is a guy who doesn't believe what he says. could you get that from the interview? did the tone and his willingness to say that as bluntly as he said it surprise you? >> the oval office interview took place for 45 mi
in the rose garden yet and no one has told him, chris. doug is absolutely right. he's not good on his feet. his last few interviews have been aces a ters. he was terrible with david gregory. when paul ryan sat down with chris wallace, he was hammered on the absence of details in their plans. romney couldn't even handle bret bear from fox. they can't even go to fox when they go on fox nobody blows fox who is a republican except these two guys. so i think it's the prevent defense except he's not sitting on a lead. but he's behind in most of the swing states. he's behind in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, nevada. you know, i'm not sure this is so safe, but it's probably the safest course for him. >> well, i think bret bear is pretty good in that interview. one reason romney might steer clear of sit-down interviews, he's been barraged with questions about senate candidate richard mourdock. take a look. >> governor, do you wish mourdock would pull that ad? >> which way are we going? >> governor, do you disavow mourdock's comments on the rape? >> thank you. >> governor, do you disavow murdoch's comments

, the of the american action forum. doug, good to have you with us. i never heard people be intelligent in their own special ways go conspiracy nut on us when the report came out. give us the direct, simplest explanation how in the world we can see the payrolls rise by 114,000, and the unemployment rate plummet to 7.8%. >> the payroll employment, the 1 # 14,000, is a number that we get by going to firms saying how many people on the payroll? they ask one out of every three workers. it's a big survey of the economy, considered the most reliable. the other number is going to households saying do you have a job? if the answer is no, are you looking for work? if so, you count as unemployed. this month, they asked do you have a job, somehow, the reports came back that we traded 873 # additional job, simply, completely out of line with everything else in the economy, and only evidence of what is effectively a bad poll. they found people not representative of the united states, and it really ought to be dismissed, but that's the real source of the decline in unemployment, and it's unrelated to the 114,000
